Inspiration and Copying by shebid Inspiration and Copying by shebid
There is a line drawn between Inspiration and Copying. That line isn't a "hairline" no, not at all, but a line that's thick, a line so thick that one should know when that line has been crossed.

Inspiration is fabulous, do not get me wrong.. In fact, I feel the world of art and fashion feeds off of inspiration. Inspiration is not the problem, it is when inspiration is taken SO FAR that the very last shred of what /may have been/ unique about something was ripped apart. Style theft, almost worst than actual theft, because it isn't illegal.

Yes I pull inspiration from many artists I see, of course, I pull inspiration from music I hear, like many..But never will I go so far to lose the element of me in my work, in anything I do, never.

in most cases I would agree with you, but the person who steals would use that as an excuse....like Hinata-sanzo (who thinks she can take someone elses work and do it so much better than the original artist).....she blatantly stole my work and said it was just an 'inspiration' piece and she was using my art as 'reference'. then her art ended looked exactly like mine.
*koffkoffbitchkoff*

other than that, it looks good

That's bad too, it's all bad -_-

Inspiration to me is getting a boost off of someone's ideas to influence your own, ya know =/

yeah...like fan art 'n stuff. it's good to set a boundary between what's ripped off and what you use to inspire yourself.

when you see it like that, it's all good.
